Valentine's Day Mini Craft Day

My sister and I decided to have a mini craft day with our girls on Monday. I, of course, decided I needed to do a little crafting myself late the night before and gussied up their table a bit. Who says the kids get to have all the fun? I'd picked up this awesome sprinkle tape from Target and I was dying to use it for something.

Truth be told, Alice and I had a rough day on Monday. Lots of whining, screaming, tears - let's just say emotions were running high (from both of us). This moment of crafting the girls actually sat still, shared nicely and quietly painted their hearts away. I'm so glad we did this and I can now just focus on this happy moment of the day amongst the chaos and tears...

We didn't have much of a crafting plan, we just threw some paint, foam hearts and canvas at them and they made a mess, toddler style. I'm pretty sure most adults can't get away with topless crafting ;)

It's quite a beautiful mess though, isn't it?

  9. I'm at my most creative when I craft topless. Though "Hey, how did glue end up in there?" ;-)
    I love the little details & looks of concentration on the girls' faces. You're so awesome for creating fun activities for them!! Fueling their creative spirits. Hoping these rampant high emotions are short-lived, my friend. Much love to you!!

    1. oh no! Sorry you couldn't find it. It was in the valentine's section next to all the cards and valentine's crafts. Hopefully your store still has some, they're probably on super clearance now!
